COSA poll: Majority disapprove of how Biden handled China spy balloon

Published in Blog on February 08, 2023 by Brianna Kraemer

Americans on both sides of the aisle think the way our president handled the Chinese spy balloon incident makes the country appear weak on the world stage.

Convention of States Action polling, in partnership with The Trafalgar Group, reveals 63.4 percent of voters disapprove of President Biden’s handling of the Chinese spy balloon.

The administration opted to allow the intelligence balloon to fly over sensitive sites to collect information rather than shooting it down in rural forests. 

Additionally, 59.2 percent of voters believe the handling of the Chinese spy balloon has made America look weak, putting the nation in a vulnerable position.

Government officials claimed to have been monitoring the balloon for days as it made its way into U.S. airspace from Canada, but they did nothing about it. About 59 percent of voters believe President Biden should have taken quicker action to shoot down the Chinese spy balloon before it even entered U.S. sovereign airspace. 

Instead, the balloon was permitted to fly from the northwest in Montana to the southeast in the Carolinas. 

“This is what happens when unserious people are put in charge and come up against serious and dangerous problems," said Mark Meckler, President of Convention of States. "America would be better off if President Biden and his administration spent less time telling us people’s pronouns and pushing far-left initiatives, and more time on the important business of actually running our nation."

Meckler added that China is the greatest threat to America since the Soviet Union, and they are laughing at us.

Petition your state legislator

Almost everyone knows that our federal government is on a dangerous course. The unsustainable debt combined with crushing regulations on states and businesses is a recipe for disaster.

What is less known is that the Founders gave state legislatures the power to act as a final check on abuses of power by Washington, DC. Article V of the U.S. Constitution authorizes the state legislatures to call a convention to proposing needed amendments to the Constitution. This process does not require the consent of the federal government in Washington DC.

I support Convention of States; a national movement to call a convention under Article V of the United States Constitution, restricted to proposing amendments that will impose fiscal restraints on the federal government, limit its power and jurisdiction, and impose term limits on its officials and members of Congress.

I want our state to be one of the necessary 34 states to pass a resolution calling for this kind of an Article V convention. You can find a copy of the model resolution and the Article V Pocket Guide (which explains the process and answers many questions) here:

I ask that you support Convention of States and consider becoming a co-sponsor. Please respond to my request by informing the national COS team of your position, or sending them any questions you may have: or (540) 441-7227.

Thank you so much for your service to the people of our district.
